Endoluminal bronchogenic carcinoma, though a minority of lung cancer cases, presents a unique opportunity to utilize techniques for the diagnosis and therapy that are unavailable for more peripheral tumors. This review explores current techniques for the diagnosis, staging, and therapy of endoluminal central bronchogenic tumors and also introduces techniques currently under investigation as potential improvements or replacements for current techniques using recent literature. Additionally, the new staging criteria set forth in the 7th edition of the TMN staging system as a result of the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC), International Union Against Cancer (IUCC), and the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC) are discussed with respect to endoluminal bronchogenic carcinoma.
